If the slew of QWERTY keyboards recently launched for your HTPC haven’t fit the bill, have a look at Adesso’s latest full size, 30 foot range, 2.4Ghz RF wireless multimedia keyboard. What makes the $119.99 Adesso RF SlimTouch Pro Touchpad Keyboard (WKB-4200UB) different from most other wireless keyboards is that it places the built-in touchpad (with left/right buttons and a scroll strip) where the number pad usually goes and includes 6 multimedia buttons right along side it for quick access. Adesso’s designers even thought ahead and included sleep mode and power on/off buttons to help users extended the keyboard’s battery life (requires 2 x AAA batteries) when not couch surfing. Overall the WKB-4200UB’s design is quite nice and can be easily be used as a replacement desktop keyboard, if one wanted to. [via]

    This is ALMOST what I'm looking for. What I want to do is spread out the duties between my left hand and my right hand. Right now, my right hand does almost everything (mouse moving, clicking, dragging, scrolling, etc). My left hand just does typing.

    I want a keyboard like this BUT with the trackpad on the left side to give my left hand more to do. I want to use my right ONLY for mouse moving and my left hand for clicking, dragging, and scrolling.

    This keyboard would be great if the trackpad were on the left side.
